Michaud won just one of three fights during his UFC tenure, defeating Garrett Whiteley, while suffering defeats to Olivier Aubin-Mercier and Jingliang Li. Michaud has also previously challenged for the Titan Fighting Championships Welterweight Title, losing to fellow UFC veteran Dhiego Lima by decision at Titan FC 39.
Rodrigues (20-6-0-1NC) is going to be making his LFA debut in this fight and he is going to be doing so on the strength of a two fight winning streak. Rodrigues is also going to be competing for the first time in just over a years, as his last bout came at a 1 Round Combat MMA event in May of 2016. Rodrigues is going to be competing stateside for the first time in his professional MMA career, as the majority of his pro MMA fights have taken place in Brazil.
